Not very good as a simple router.

PrgWiz, Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I was hoping to use this router to connect to Comcast Fiber service. It was very challenging to figure out how to setup simple routing with a public IP on the WAN side and public IP subnet on the LAN side. I did manage to figure it out but the router did no perform well with traffic of the office.

  • Summary: This is the second time I tried this router. Unortunetly it seems that this is the only one of it's kind on the market. I was hoping a recent firmware update solved the problems.. No luck!!! This router just chokes.

This is not a true Gig bit router it can only route 15 MBPS from LAN to WAN

HappyShopper, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I have 100 MBPS internet link. If i connect directly to WAN, i get 98 MBPS. This router said that it has 100 MBPS on WAN and 1000 MBPS LAN port. I bought this router thinking, it will allow me to use full internet capacity. After connecting this i noticed that i only get 10 to 15 MBPS when tested.

Bad firmware out of the box

R. Mcgee, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: This review is based on installation and configuration. The Netgear router replaced an older D-Link that was getting overloaded due to our increasing number of household network devices. The box itself feels sturdy and comes with wall mounting hardware.

Failed after 18months

J. Dean, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: This device failed to get a wan address after 18 months. After a few reboots it would get an address and then after a few days it failed to distribute dhcp on the lan. After a week or so of this behavior its dead. When it did work I used it and I liked it.

Not my cup of Tea

C. S. Maslin, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this router to be both firewall/switch and connected wireless router behind it. I found that it didn't play well with others and locked up both LAN and WAN on an intermittent basis.

Vishwas A., Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: With the current versions of FireFox, Edge and Chrome browsers, it is not possible to reach Router's webpages which makes it impossible to configure the router. Only the old Microsoft IE 11 browser works.

Stuff like custom service ports didn't allow a single port number ...

Chris Porosky, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: Buggy firmware which ruins an otherwise decent entry level business firewall. Stuff like custom service ports didn't allow a single port number on the firmware before last and now the latest firmware doesn't allow additional inbound static IPs for 1 to 1 NAT.
